[R-pkg-devel] Vignette does not show up after loading package

I am developing a package for the interpretation of mass spectrometry data, which can be found here: https://github.com/goat-anti-rabbit/labelpepmatch.R
I wrote a vignette that compiles fine into a .html using knitr in Rstudio.
The output line in the vignette.rmd file looks like :
However, when I use devtools::install_github("goat-anti-rabbit/labelpepmatch.R") or devtools::install_github("goat-anti-rabbit/labelpepmatch.R",build_vignettes = TRUE), the package loads normally, but no vignette is found when using browseVignettes("labelpepmatch") or vignette("labelpepmatch").
I don't really get this, because as far as I understood, shouldn't the package be able to build the vignette from scratch?
I also tried with these lines for output:
And it nicely knits into example html and pdf files, but no real files are created in the labelpepmatch/vignettes directory. Any suggestions here?
So: recap of my questions:
1. Should it be possible for the vignette to be built from scratch and if yes, what is missing in my package for this functionality to work?
2. How can I make knitr output a html AND pdf in my vignettes directory?
Looking forward to your replies.
Many, many thanks!
